Creating tag categories and tags

In this example, you use tags to identify the following things about devices in the Security Fabric:

  • Physical location
  • Department
  • Network administrators
  1. To create the tag category for physical location, connect to Edge and go to System > Tags.

  2. Set Tag Category to Location. Because each device in the network can only have one location, disable Allow multiple tag selection.

  3. Add Tags for the first floor, second floor, and third floor.

  4. Under Tag Scope, set Device to Mandatory.

  5. For the department tag, enable Allow multiple tag selection.

  6. Add Tags for the following departments: Accounting, Marketing, Sales, and Admin.

  7. Under Tag Scope, set Interface to Mandatory and set Device to Mandatory. Because the FortiGate configuration includes default addresses, set Address to Optional.

  8. For the network administrators tag, enable Allow multiple tag selection.

  9. Add Tags for Robert and Lisa.

  10. Under Tag Scope, set Device to Mandatory.

  11. Because the configuration of tag categories and tags isn’t synchronized across the Security Fabric, you must connect to each FortiGate device separately and add the appropriate tags for the part of your network that uses that FortiGate.

    Connect to Accounting and repeat the previous steps to create the tags that are shown.
